why do Canon HG20 videos play slow on my pc?

i just bought the HG20 camcorder based on the cnet editor and user reviews...i like it but have a couple of problems:
all videos i make play well on the camcorder. however, when i export the videos to my pc, they are jerky and skip several frames when i play them in the image mixer 3 se software that was included? is this due to a setting i messed up on the camcorder? i have it setup to run the highest resolution and the standard high quality 24mbps, frame rate is 60i. i don't have the best pc but it's not horrible either: vista home basic, 2gb ram, intel pentium 4 cpu 3.00 ghz
also the video is grainy...i haven't set any effects to the camcorder. for the highest quality video i wouldn't expect it to look that bad.
i haven't really changed any settings. i am very new to using camcorders, so it's probably my mistake...i just don't know what to do.
also, how do i export videos so something other than image mixer can play them? does anyone recommend a video editing/viewing software for me to get? does the sony vegas software only asupport sony camcorders?
thanks for any help to a complete newbie!
